Mr Simon Woodruff
MB BS, FRCOphth
I am a Consultant Ophthalmic & Oculoplastic Surgeon at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust in Cambridge. I graduated from St. Marys Hospital Medical School, London in 1991. I then trained in general medicine, general surgery and emergency medicine before starting specialization in Ophthalmology in 1994. Most of my training has been in London teaching hospitals and includes four years subspecialty training as a fellow in oculoplastic, lacrimal & orbital surgery with two years at Moorfields Eye Hospital & a further two years at The Western Eye Hospital, London.
My practice covers all general ophthalmology but my special interests are small incision cataract surgery, oculoplastic surgery including ptosis, entropion/ectropion, eyelid reconstruction following tumour excision, the surgical rehabilitation of thyroid eye disease and tear duct or lacrimal surgery (including by an endoscopic approach). I have a keen interest in cosmetic eyelid and facial surgery and offer non-surgical facial treatments such as Botox and fillers. I am able to offer lower lid cosmetic surgery via a transconjunctival internal approach avoiding any external scarring and I have a particular special interest and experience in re-do eye surgery following unsatisfactory results elsewhere.
Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
